With so much destruction around training does seem a bit trivial. As I'm sure most of you have heard, the state of Alabama was hit with some fairly major tornadoes last Wednesday from which we are only now beginning to recover.  Thankfully my house, and most of my neighborhood, was spared from the worst of the damage but others close by were not so lucky.  While much of the media attention has focused on Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, a number of smaller towns in northern Alabama were particularly hard hit with some entire towns being wiped almost entirely off the map. The tragedy, of course, is that many of the residents of these towns were desperately poor before the storm and now have lost almost all of what little they had.

I'll have another post on this later this week but for now if you are in the Huntsville area and want to help or have items to donate, this article on al.com has a nice round-up of places you can go to donate your time or goods.

Of course you often here that cash donations are most effective, so go here, to the Salvation Army, to make an easy, safe, secure donation.  If you are too lazy to follow the link, you can simply text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation to the Red Cross.  Its just that easy!
